when two exponents are beside each other with out any sign, do we multiply?

OpenStudy (anonymous):

OpenStudy (anonymous):

ok, like \[2^{-2} 1\] would we multiply

OpenStudy (anonymous):

yes.. that would be -4(1) so it would be -4 ... but I dont understand why the 1 is not in parenthesis it should be 2(1)

OpenStudy (anonymous):

no no no, i',m not talking about the exponent, i'm talking about the number beside it. the 1, would we multiply with that or do we leave it as it is

OpenStudy (anonymous):

after you have squared the two.. i would assume you would multiply it again by ...??

OpenStudy (anonymous):

by 1 sorry

OpenStudy (anonymous):

ok,we would do this with any number after the squaring is done or could we do this before the square aswell.

OpenStudy (anonymous):

if you are using any number other than one.. you should square it first.. then multiply by the other number..

OpenStudy (anonymous):

ok thanks

OpenStudy (anonymous):

OpenStudy (anonymous):

for example if you said 2^-2 4..which should be 2^-2(4) then you would get -4(4) which is -16.. make sense?

OpenStudy (anonymous):

ok

OpenStudy (precal):

\[2^{-2}\neq-4\]

OpenStudy (precal):

\[(2^{-2})(4)\] \[(1/2^{2})(4)\] \[(1/4)(4)=1\]
